Smile Foo Fighters Elimination Game Round 1

This poll will stay up until (1) next week Saturday, and (2) we get at least ten voters.

The object of this game is that you vote off the song you like least, and the game proceeds until only one song remains.

What forum does this go in, then?

ETA: Okay, I guess I thought this forum was for any topic that pertained to song recordings. I don't mind if the mods move this to the proper forum. Sorry I misread.

Can I ask? Why did you choose those songs for round one?

I actually started this game for another band that I like on another forum, but isn't as active as this forum. Mostly, I picked songs that I knew were hits - or, in the case of Dear Rosemary, I just happened to really like. If I was to do this game for Led Zeppelin, I certainly wouldn't include Stairway to Heaven. In an topic on this forum, there was a little debate over whether or not Everlong was the Foo Fighters' "Stairway to Heaven" - so to speak. So I kind of decided to put it to the test by including the song.

So far, it looks like Best of You is gonna be voted off - but I'm not gonna start Round 2 until this Saturday, so anyone who hasn't voted yet still have plenty of time do so.

But if there's no structure to it or the songs that were picked then surely it's just "Which is your favourite of these songs that I, FooFooRock, have picked because I think they're popular or because I like them?" Don't you think? It doesn't mean anything...

Well, I couldn't exactly include every single Foo Fighters song on the poll - as you are limited to ten poll choices. So I had to narrow it down to ten, somehow. If you don't like the way I'm hosting this game, then start your own. I might even participate.

I just think it doesn't mean anything when it's just a random selection of ten songs. What if for arguments sake everyone here's favourite Foo Fighters song was Doll? It's not there so you'd never know. It probably isn't, but you don't know that.

I'm not going to do one because to be honest I don't really think its worth the effort. I was just giving some advice.
If I was to do an elimination style thread it wouldn't be a poll. I'd start off with group stages - Have all the first album songs and b-sides in one group, all TCATS songs, b-sides and any other TCATS era releases in the next and so on. Songs get eliminated one by one til there are four left in each group. Lets say there are seven groups to begin with, one for each album era, that leaves us with 28 songs. Those songs would be randomly assigned to one of four "round 2" groups of seven songs each. Those would be eliminated until there are three left in each round 2 group, leaving twelve songs. This would be followed by round three in which those twelve remaining songs are randomly assigned to two groups. Those songs would be eliminated til there were two songs left in each group. 4 songs left altogether. Then you've got yourself a case of a semi final and a final. And what do you get?....EVERLONG!!!!

If You're Gonna Do It, Do It Right

Okay, fair enough. I understand your points.

As I said before, though, this isn't the first band that I started this game for. As the other band's forum that I frequent is much less active than this one (and took me two weeks to get ten voters), going through the route that you've suggested wouldn't be quite worth the effort. I do feel sorry for anyone whose favourite song I left out, though - and I admit I wouldn't have much interest in a Led Zeppelin Elimination Game that didn't have Over the Hills and Far Away on it. I'm also the kind of Led Zeppelin fan who really does not care for Stairway to Heaven, and I suppose some Foo Fighters fans would probably feel the same way about Everlong.

That said, since I do have the game started - I'd rather just finish it. Once this game is finished, I could do it again - and take into consider some of the things you've suggested. And maybe leave off Everlong - if that song does, in fact, end up winning. I admit that a part of me is a bit curious to test out if Everlong really is the Foo Fighters' "Stairway to Heaven", though.

Sorry I got defensive on you, but I just didn't understand what I could do when my options are limited. I really wish the board's system did not limit users to ten poll choices.

I can't believe the answers here. My Hero and Breakout have no votes and are such over ratted songs while ppl will vote for This is a Call. Unreal

Well, people have a right to their own opinions. I happen to be a Led Zeppelin fan, but I prefer Over the Hills and Far Away to Stairway to Heaven.

Okay, I am now going to be starting Round Two.

Well then I respect you because in my opinion LZ IV is overrated and Houses of the Holy is their best album
